Walker seeks names for holiday program

Walker Furniture is once again seeking letters on behalf of individuals and families in need in Clark County for its 17th annual Home for the Holidays program.

As in years past, Walker Furniture will supply a house full of brand-new furniture for families in need in time for the holiday season.

Larry Alterwitz, chief executive officer of Walker Furniture, said the company will help make the holidays brighter for 25 families in need, with furniture deliveries starting Dec. 17.

Since 1994, Home for the Holidays has brought incredible joy and relief to hundreds of valley families that have endured a variety of hardships. Recipients have included single-parent households having difficulty making ends meet, many of them with children suffering from physical or mental disorders; families that lost their homes and belongings to fires; and families that have been affected by illness or domestic violence. The letters typically come from teachers and students, health care professionals, social service workers, clergy, friends, neighbors, children and grandchildren.

Walker Furniture relies on the public to submit letters on behalf of prospective recipients. Anyone with an individual or family in mind should send a letter to Walker Furniture describing the situation.

Letters should be sent to Larry Alterwitz, CEO; Walker Furniture, 301 S. Martin Luther King Blvd., Las Vegas, NV 89106. They also can be hand delivered to the store, faxed to 384-7772 or e-mailed to tmeier@walkerfurniture.com.

Walker Furniture must receive letters by Dec. 6.

All letters are reviewed by outside, independent panels. The preliminary panel consists of representatives of HELP of Southern Nevada .

Home for the Holidays is the company’s largest annual charitable endeavor . The program began in 1994.
